January 16, 2003 This is a SPECIAL Alert:

Since they haven't been able to get amnesty for illegal aliens (yet),
the Mexican government is trying a new tactic: give them Mexican I.D. cards, and get the U.S. to accept those cards as "proper identification" in order to receive social services and related privileges usually reserved for legal citizens.

And now, ultra-liberal U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)
has endorsed a pilot program allowing a federal building in San Francisco to accept the Matricula Consular (identification cards issued by the Mexican
Consulate) as a legitimate form of identification for visitors.

That's right: I.D. cards for illegal immigrants.

According to recent newspaper accounts, Rep. Pelosi supports a plan to
make the Phillip Burton Federal Building in San Francisco a much more
unsafe facility by allowing illegal aliens entrance to the building after showing an identity card provided by a foreign government. These cards are being distributed by Mexican Consular officials throughout the United States in the hope that cities and states will accept them as proper I.D. One man arrested in California was carrying three cards with different names.

The Phillip Burton Federal Building in San Francisco is the first of its
type in the country to accept Mexican Consulate identification cards. The
building began accepting the cards on Wednesday, January 8, 2003, as part of a four-month trial program, which will mainly serve illegal immigrants who are ineligible for U.S. identification.

What happens if the "trial program" is "successful"? You got it -- this
program will be forcibly instituted in government buildings throughout the
United States, giving supporters of amnesty for illegal immigrants more
firepower to push their agenda through.

This MUST be stopped.

U.S. Representative Tom Tancredo (R-CO), chairman of the Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus, is outraged, and for good reason. "It is extremely disconcerting to see agents of a foreign country actively trying to lobby American elected officials to aid and abet lawbreakers, but it is even more infuriating when cities and members of Congress become co-conspirators," said Tancredo.

According to the Washington Times, "cardholders are widely recognized to
be in the United States illegally" because they otherwise would be able to
obtain state-issued cards, such as driver's licenses. "Even New York State
and New York City, believe it or not, have decided to not accept the
Matricula Consular cards because of the dangerous situation that puts
people in," Rep. Tancreto said.

We need to make sure this doesn't spread and lead to a successful push
for "amnesty" for illegal immigrants. Legislation is being prepared by Rep.
Tancredo right now that will put a STOP to Rep. Pelosi's liberal
nonsense -- and citizens need to demand that Congress pass that legislation IMMEDIATELY!

As always, we've also set up a way at for you to
send a FREE e-mail to your Senators and Representatives
(, to demand that they
support legislation that would stop the recognition of I.D. cards for illegal
immigrants. Be sure to forward this e-mail to everyone you know that wants to DIScourage -- not ENcourage -- people to violate the laws of this

Thank you!
